Why choose legalsuper


The fund for Australia's legal community

legalsuper’s origins are in the legal community itself. The current day legalsuper fund was formed by the joining of the super funds established by the Law Societies of Victoria and NSW. Today, our members come from every facet of the law and we remain dedicated to the community we were founded by. As a profit for members fund you can be confident that we act in your best interests and, like you, we are driven by our commitment to accuracy, accountability and quality, to meet and exceed the high expectations of our community.


Strong performance over the short and long term

legalsuper’s default investment option, MySuper balanced achieved a return of 10.9%(1) in 2016/17, outperforming the industry average(2) over 1, 3, 5 and 10 years. Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance and should never be the sole factor considered when selecting a fund.


 (1)These returns are for legalsuper’s MySuper Balanced investment option over the above periods to 30 June 2017. The MySuper balanced investment option is where 69% of members are invested. These returns are net of direct administration fees and indirect investment fees and tax, and gross of indirect administration fees.
(2) SuperRatings is an independent research provider for the superannuation industry. Its research helps super funds monitor and improve their performance and benchmark themselves against other super funds. 

The benefit of legalsuper over retail funds

The below chart shows how, based on a starting income of $50,000 and a starting super balance of $50,000, legalsuper’s MySuper Balanced option has delivered around $29,000 more than the average retail super fund (master trust) over the past 15 years*. It also shows how much better off a member could have been whether they switched to legalsuper 1, 3, 5, 7, 10 or 15 years ago.

Past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance and should never be the sole factor considered when selecting a fund.
